What do I need to do to create a shop?

How do I get paid?

When you accept payments with PayPal, funds from sales on Shop Kemet will be deposited into your account. We encourage sellers to use a Business account and not a Personal account, as personal accounts are subject to monthly receiving limits and cannot accept payments from buyers that are funded by a credit card.

Do I need a credit or debit card to create a shop?

No, a credit or debit card is not required to create a shop. To be verified as a seller you have the choice to use either a credit card or to register via PayPal. You will not incur any charges until after the first month you open your shop and begin making sales.

What can I sell on Shop Kemet?

Shop Kemet provides a marketplace for products and services that are culturally relevant to the African American community. This may include such items as cosmetics, hair care and grooming items as well as art, fashion, photography, literature and specialty services like African-centric consulting and counseling, but by no means is this a complete list. Vendors and visitors to a like from all walks of life are certainly welcomed; however, items and services sold on this site must demonstrate a high level of cultural sensitivity to the unique needs and desires of this influential but often overlooked community, who collectively contribute $1.3T annually to the U.S. economy.
